Bloke in white shirt whispers: "Right, that's just about the last of it. Hoskins, when you've finished messing about there, nip up into the cockpit and pull the wires off the back of the "Jettison" switch. Try not to let his nibs up there see what you're doing. Last thing we want is him punching this off at the first sign of Jerry".

Alternative fuel trials continue to show disappointing results. However, the source of the trouble has been narrowed to the head.

I’ll just hide here on the wing, if you see the Staish you haven’t seen me.

I tell you, I landed in the French back of beyond on the first bloody half built emergency strip to bring refreshment to the boys and the bloody NAAFI wagon was already there and was under cutting me.

Initial tests used a safe substitute and took place on the ground; now, In-Flight Refuelling is commonplace.

Additional supplies are urgently needed to be flown to HMPOW anchored in the Solent and the BBMF Spitfire is the only current RAF aircraft with sufficient short field capabilities....and it's only a short hop from Eastleigh
